Receptive, Responsive, Resilient: Yoga & Emotional Health By Katie Lane

Date: November 23, 2018

Time: 9:15 am - 12:15 pm

Location: AJ100

Receptive, Responsive, Resilient: Yoga & Emotional Health By Katie Lane
  • There are different ways of paying attention. Living in a world that requires us to get from point A to point B multiple times a day (and navigate a complex array of stimulus en route) means that a large part of our attention is focused outwardly.
  • Necessary so! However more and more research is showing that our ability to successfully engage with what’s external is increasingly benefitted by cultivating another type of awareness – that which is focused inwardly. This is called interception.
  • Besides telling us we are hungry, tired, etc., our interoceptive system is also what allows us to FEEL our emotions. Something happens and we sense our muscles tighten, jaw clench, heartbeat quicken, heat flows through us. We receive sensation first, then name what we feel as anger. Emotions are directly linked to physical sensation in the body.
  • In essence, feelings are physiology. In this three hour workshop, we will use yoga practice, free movement, meditation, breathwork, and discussion to explore our inner landscape. Our aim is to find and widen the space between the moment we experience something in our body and the subsequent emotional label and story we immediately attach to it. What we’ll cultivate in doing this is called response flexibility.
  • We will look at two main categories of our awareness – exteroception (outer) and interoception (inner) – and explore how the conscious direction of our attention both inwardly and outwardly can amplify, soothe, transform, or give more context to what we feel.
  • You will leave empowered by concrete practices that can support you in times of strong emotion and experience your own body as a supportive resourcing tool. Bring a yoga mat, journal, pen, and a your curiosity!

Gentle is the new Advanced

Date: November 23, 2018

Time: 9:15 am - 12:15 pm

Location: Main Marquee

Gentle is the new Advanced
  • Imagine yoga before it was transformed in its journey to the West. Imagine a personalized, breath-centered practice, passed down from individual teacher to student.
  • A Yoga for the well being of the whole person; something that would provide a vehicle for learning to truly take care of ourselves and ease the pains of life. Yoga changed when it came to the West.
    New styles and brands of yoga have developed which meet the desires and expectations of the western audience.
  • Focusing on the outer, physical achievements, and perhaps losing something in the creation of a standardized, scaled and franchised approach to yoga. But the older traditions have also continued, and J. Brown is at the forefront of a wonderful resurgence of this ‘old-school’ yoga. This is J’s signature offering that he has given to thousands of teachers and students around the world.
  • At once both a revolution and a return to the ancient roots of yoga. In this gentle, therapeutic, breath-centered approach, we are making the body strong and flexible — but we go about it in a way that also encourages useful patterns of thought and behavior.
  • In this workshop, we explore: – Methods for incorporating therapeutic orientation into group classes – The role that breath plays in supporting the body – The effects of different sequencing, pacing and purpose in group flow classes – Techniques for teaching diverse populations and multilevel students – The teacher/student relationship.

Speaker – J.Brown

Mantra focused Viniyoga

Date: November 23, 2018

Time: 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm

Location: Main Marquee

Mantra focused Viniyoga
  • Many of us focus on breath co ordination in our Yoga Practice but another chosen focus can be the use of sound and mantra. Mantra focused practice gives us the opportunity to intensify the quality that we wish to become in our practice.
  • We will learn how to synchronise movement and breath to mantra through vocalising or mentally repeating mantras. You will not require any experience of mantra to come along to this workshop and explore how we can bring about results from linking a quality to a mantra and applying it to the techniques of Yoga practice.
  • Leanne will be presenting this approach to Yoga practice from what has been passed on to her in the Krishnamacharya tradition of Yoga from Desikachar that she has studied in for over 20 years.

How to activate your Deep Front Line

Date: November 23, 2018

Time: 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm

Location: AJ100

How to activate your Deep Front Line
  • Come & learn how to connect to what I would call the true core of the body that runs from the soles of the feet to the base of the skull. Exploring how to use our connection to earth to activate and stabilise the body, particularly around the joints.
  • These techniques will change the way that you practice & will help you to rapidly gain more strength & stability as well protecting your joints. This workshop will be delivered through an embodied anatomy lesson and a Vinyasa Flow style class but could be applied to a more traditional hatha class. This work is based on my emodied understanding of Thomas Myers work in his book Anatomy Trains.

Becoming more resilient

Date: November 23, 2018

Time: 2:30 pm - 4:00 pm

Location: Main Marquee

Becoming more resilient
  • How yoga can improve vagal tone and help us cope with the stressors in our life.
  • Good vagal tone improves our resiliency and ability to cope with the ups and downs of life. Anxiety and Depression are symptoms of low vagal tone.Specific elements within the Yoga practice have been shown to directly influence the vagus nerve and improve heart rate variability and thus the bodies ability to regulate itself.
  • This practice will focus on the ways in which we can directly influence the vagus nerve – breath work, chanting/singing, movement and interoception. The more kinaesthetic awareness we have, the easier we can detect subtle shifts within the body that could be leading towards anxiety or low mood.
  • When we have these early detection signs we can utilise things like the breath to calm and quiet the body and the mind. This fascial flow will tap into the hidden areas of the body and we will finish in meditation noticing all of the sensations and deepening our interoception.

Speaker – Kylie Rook

Yoga Therapy Discussion Panel

Date: November 23, 2018

Time: 2:30 pm - 4:00 pm

Location: AJ100

  • How does New Zealand differentiate between yoga teachers and yoga therapists?
  • What are local and international standards for yoga therapy training? For example, yoga therapists meeting Yoga Australia yoga therapy standards are recognised in NZ as yoga therapists by Yoga New Zealand.
  • How do we, as a national yoga community, want to support yoga therapy development in our country?
  • The panel will discuss how we envision yoga therapy to become recognised as a legitimate healing modality in our country. As we explore the accreditations available for yoga therapists and yoga therapy training in NZ, we may inquire into how we can integrate into the professional health system. For example, could yoga therapy be funded by insurance organisations such as ACC?
  • The panel discussion outcome:
  • To understand the pathways to becoming a certified yoga therapist in NZ and to create an advisory group to develop a plan for both recognition and integration of yoga therapy in our national health system over time.
Speaker – J.Brown

Yoga by your Self – A discussion on the art and role of self-practice

Date: November 23, 2018

Time: 4:15 pm - 5:30 pm

Location: Main Marquee

Yoga by your Self – A discussion on the art and role of self-practice

This presentation will:

  • Explain a definition and history of Self-practice within the Yoga tradition.
  • Seek to inspire and support teachers and practitioners to cultivate a sustainable personal-practice.
  • List ways of staying disciplined and committed.
  • Offer questions that keep a self-practice alive.
  • Investigate ways to evaluate and make appropriate practice choices.
  • Deliver a ‘personal weather report’ meditation.

The Yoga Tradition comes with the universal goal of liberation, however, the journey that we tread is a personal one. A yoga practice must attend to our own unique needs and often this requires going beyond the modern phenomenon of yoga studios and online classes with the prioritisation of a self-practice.

Self-practice is especially vital for Yoga teachers who need to teach from experience, exploration and a felt sense of understanding. Perhaps doing a self-practice is the difference between being a Yoga teacher and a Yoga Instructor?

Depending on the style, lineage, or teacher, the yoga tradition offers various approaches to the art of self-practice. With the continuing reports around abuse of power by ‘gurus’ and lead teachers, as well as the ever-growing list of injuries that people are receiving through specific yoga approaches and alignment cues, this talk and discussion will ask how we can develop our own inner reference system to guide our own yoga journey and not always have to be guided by the outer reference of teacher or traditional lineage.

Come learn and share ideas to support a sustainable personal practice approach.

Hau Ora – Yoga & Mindfulness from a Maori Perspective including Welcome Drinks and Nibbles

Date: November 23, 2018

Time: 5:45 pm - 7:00 pm

Location: Main Marquee, AJ100

  • Hau Ora is the ancient māori holistic practice of the 4 pillars of wellbeing or Te Whare Tapa Whā. ‘HAU’ translates to mean ‘vital essence’ and ‘ORA’ broken down, expresses the sunniness or ‘light’ that exists within you and me. We focus on connection to Self, through balance in body (tinana) and mind (hinengaro) then to Others through the practice of whānau and then a beautiful connection to something way greater than all of us or Spirit (wairua).
  • These pillars work beautifully with the eastern practices of Yoga! Jase explores the link between the 2 worlds, celebrating the sameness or oneness rather than the differences! He explains how the 2 worlds combine beautifully to create his Mindfulness for children programme M3, a programme for tamariki aged 5-10 focusing on Māori Mythology, Movement of yoga and Mindfulness.

Speaker – Jase Te Patu

Keynote – Empowering People Through Interoception: Restoring Full Sensory Capacity

Date: November 24, 2018

Time: 8:15 am - 10:00 am

Location: Main Auditorium

“Almost anyone can learn to think or believe or know, but not a single human being can be taught to feel.  Why?  Because whenever you think or you believe or you know, you’re a lot of other people, but the moment you feel, you’re nobody-but-yourself.” ~ e.e. cummings
  • Did you know that “Simon Says” learning perpetuates disconnection from felt sensation?  How do movement teachers and instructors educate students about the difference between positive intensified sensation and “bad pain” so they can differentiate between sound and unsound practices?
  • Join Donna on an educational and empowering journey as you learn how to shift from being an audiovisual teacher to a kinesthetic facilitator.
  • In the West we go about learning movement in the same way we approach academics–through the visual and auditory sense channels with the kinesthetic sense remaining undeveloped, ignored, and mistrusted.  Whether you work one-on-one, or whether you teach group classes, Donna will explore how you can create structures for learning that improve people’s ability to tap into their felt sensation and to use it as a potent navigational system.
  • She’ll discuss why the myth of “no pain, no gain” has created an epidemic of both chronic and acute Yoga and fitness injuries, and how unraveling the unscientific basis of this myth can help people to appreciate pain as a messenger asking them to make new choices.

Who are you? Beyond the Boundaries Yin/Yang Flow Class

Date: November 24, 2018

Time: 11:40 am - 12:40 pm

Location: AJ100

Who are you? Beyond the Boundaries Yin/Yang Flow Class
  • Peel back the layers. When we get down to the core of universal consciousness, we understand that we are all part of one energetic field and made up of the same “stuff”.
  • When we move from that place of knowing, we can feel the Yin in the Yang and the Yang in the Yin. We see the natural ebb and flow of everything, we understand that our yoga practice can be “a dance” and not “a wrestling match”. The “good” and the “bad” becomes beautiful in its’ own way. It’s all part of the same human experience.
  • If you’re ready for a physical practice supporting you to discover a deeper side of your Self, join Amy for this all-levels, Yin and Yang flow. Learn to let go of the thinking mind and move into a physical experience of breath and flow while Amy leads you in an hour long asana yoga class.

Speaker – Amy Green

Understanding the anatomy of the psoas muscles

Date: November 24, 2018

Time: 1:15 pm - 4:15 pm

Location: AJ100

Understanding the anatomy of the psoas muscles
  • A New Definition of Core: Finding, Feeling and Releasing Your Psoas Muscles The psoas is a complex stabilizing muscle that lies parallel to the lower spine and connects the spine and pelvis to the legs. Defined as the “deepest abdominal muscle”, when tight, weak, or unbalanced, the psoas muscles can literally pull the body off center. Which is why it’s so important to address imbalance at this deep level before proceeding to work that strengthens the core body.
  • Using an evocative PowerPoint lecture, Donna will guide you through the anatomy of this muscle and why it can have an impact on low back function, breathing, and even chronic stress states. In the second part of the clinic you’ll learn some very gentle, accessible and effective techniques to use for yourself and your clients to soften and release these deep muscles.
  • You’ll learn how these techniques can unwind chronic structural imbalances such as hyper or hypo lordosis (accentuation or flattening of the lumbar curve) and uni-lateral tension in the lower back. Helping your clients find balance within the deep center of the body can pave the way towards better posture, function, and ease in moving.

Feet in 3 Worlds – past, present and future

Date: November 24, 2018

Time: 1:30 pm - 2:30 pm

Location: Main Marquee

Feet in 3 Worlds – past, present and future
  • Historical and contemporary insights into how NZ’s yoga trends have changed over time. Female members of the Theosophical Society first introduced yoga to NZ in 1889, and since then the country has continued to champion female leadership.
  • Likewise, NZ has become one of the most culturally diverse countries worldwide, which means that yoga is not monolithic or static. Rather, the varied interests of NZ yoga-goers are reflected in many different contexts and changing styles.
  • This lecture seeks to answer the questions, what is yoga today? And where is yoga heading in the future? Although local yoga-goers’ acceptance of diversity plays out in different dress-codes, spiritual identities, and imagined ideals, these differences can be both liberating and segregating.
  • This lecture provides a fascinating timeline of yoga in NZ and is accompanied by a PowerPoint presentation (USB), showcasing changes taking place in yoga practices past, present and future.

Speaker – Ali Tilley

‘All levels’ yoga class continues the theme of ‘Feet in 3 worlds’

‘All levels’ yoga class continues the theme of ‘Feet in 3 worlds’
  • ‘All levels’ yoga class continues the theme of ‘Feet in 3 worlds’, integrating festival/conference themes of Houra. In this sense, the class combines fluid sequences (physical), with postural narratives from mythic India (mental/emotional), inspiring a deeper sense of meaning to commonly used yoga poses.
  • In the second part, breath and sound work will encourage people to step out of their comfort zones and into a collective ‘Zen’ zone (social & spiritual). The guided relaxation session at the end of class integrates well-being themes with connecting ad contributing to the wider yoga community.

Understanding the sacroiliac joint in movement

Date: November 25, 2018

Time: 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

Location: AJ100

Understanding the sacroiliac joint in movement
  • Preventing Yoga Injuries: Keys to Maintaining Sacroiliac Stability More and more Yoga practitioners (and their teachers) are showing up to class with sacroiliac discomfort becoming members of a rapidly growing international “SI Club”.
  • In many instances, sacroiliac joint or SIJ issues in Yoga practitioners are the consequence of repetitive dysfunctional movements, skewed body mechanics and forceful overstretching. Over time, these actions can erode the inherent stability of the pelvis and the SI joint, resulting in chronic pain and movement impairment.
  • Drawing on decades of medical research, Donna Farhi will use an evocative PowerPoint to guide you through the complex anatomy and kinesiology of the sacroiliac joints so that you can better understand why certain practices compromise the integrity of these joints, and why STRENGTHENING not STRETCHING is the key to reducing pain and healing these joints.
  • In the second part of the clinic we’ll look at two of the most common culprits for creating SIJ instability and what you can do to correct these issues. Discontinuing these common practices can radically alter the future outcome for your sacroiliac joints, hips and lower back.
  • We’ll follow this with a unique movement sequence that Donna has developed to restore pelvis balance and stability. This pelvic integrity practice is a simple, accessible practice that may become your lifelong friend.

Speaker – Donna Farhi

Returning to the heart of our practice-yoga philosophy for modern day

Date: November 25, 2018

Time: 10:00 am - 1:00 p.m

Location: TBC

  • This participatory session will discuss the Yoga Sutra of Patanjali and how we as teachers can use them to theme and inspire our classes. Delving deeper than simply looking at the yama and niyama, we will disuss some of the key themes and underlying learnings from the text.
  • This is for yoga practitioners who are interested to learn about the Sutra that underpins our asana practice and for teachers who seek to be able to weave a class that’s coherant and meaningful for today’s modern yogi, while still rooted in this ancient wisdom.
  • You do not need to have experience studying the Sutra.

Learning outcomes:

  • Understand the historic place of the Sutra.
  • Understanding of some of the central themes of the sutra.
  • Discussion and introspective thinking on how the sutra can be and is relevant to our daily life.
  • Discussion and engagement about how we can enliven this ancient text and make it relevant for modern yogic practitioners.

On Being the Biggest and the Brownest

Date: November 25, 2018

Time: 10:20 am - 11:20 am

Location: Main Marquee

On Being the Biggest and the Brownest
  • Using a self-reflexive account of my experiences as a Pasifika woman in the yoga world, I will share how my Pasifika worldview and indigenous identity informs my yoga practice and offerings. There is a rising and collective desire for yoga to present diversity and practice inclusiveness.
  • Drawing examples from lived experience, I will discuss the need for inclusiveness, as an intrinsic aspect of yoga, to be integrated into how we extrinsically share yoga practices.
  • What does cultural relevance and awareness look like, what does practicing inclusiveness feel like? I will highlight the intricacies of identity and space, with a focus on how yoga instructors may facilitate tangible and intangible spaces where Maori and Pasifika cultural spaces are acknowledged.
  • The big-picture-focus is to add to the collective consciousness around de-colonising our ways of being, within self, within yoga practice, and within relating to one other.

Challenge of the Simple –  a yoga class for all levels
  • Learning to welcome and relish being a beginner, regardless of your years of experience, is a true sign of an advanced yoga practitioner as it requires a quieter ego. When we can do the simple things with precision, grace & ease, the complicated things are simply less complicated. Yet simple does not necessarily mean easy.
  • Experience mind-body bridging by waking up to where you zone out in the simplest practices. Come with a mind to question what the fundamental foundations of your practice really are.

Location: Main Marquee

Social Enter-Prize-ing Yoga
  • Social Enter-Prize-ing Yoga —a discussion on how to take yoga off the mat & into the wider world How can we use technology to extend the reach of yoga’s values and ability to empower and liberate folks? What roles and responsibilities are there in online training? Is the direct transmission we experience in live teachings sacrificed? How can we make these powerful yogic tools more widely available without diluting them?
  • When we recognize, with gratitude, our privilege to feel safe enough, and to have time and money enough, to practice at all then we can look at ways in which we can actively shift these “privileges” into human rights for others to experience empowerment and liberation.

Speaker – Melissa Billington

Yoga Teaching in NZ

Date: November 25, 2018

Time: 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm

Location: AJ100

  • Yoga Teacher Training Panel
  • Introduction Quality standards for yoga teacher training and support in NZ for yoga teachers is close to the heart of many yoga teachers and yoga teacher training providers.
  • Whilst yoga values and respects its Indian source and teachings, a strong belief in our Kiwi identity has led to discussion on how yoga standards can include NZ needs. Many see the value of joining a yoga professional organisation which reflects the qualifications and experience of each member, supports them, and provides representation and advocacy for the yoga community.
  • The yoga community sees the relevance of aligning teacher training with best practice worldwide. The basic ‘de facto’ qualification for yoga teaching in NZ is the Yoga Alliance 200hr standard. Most training providers include the 200hr standard and teachers with this qualification may join REPs (Register of Exercise Professionals) administered by Exercise New Zealand. Some training providers also meet the more demanding standards of Yoga Australia.
  • The Teacher Training Panel will present and discuss standards and NZ needs for teacher training. Could standards be more relevant to NZ, such as including a module in Te Ao Māori – the Māori world? The panel will discuss a pragmatic proposal for a professional and representative Yoga New Zealand organisation, with support from Yoga Australia and Exercise New Zealand.
  • Yoga NZ would be run by a council representing the NZ yoga community, provide member benefits, and recognise teachers and training providers who meet basic and Yoga Australia standards for yoga teaching. More details will be available for download before the conference.
